Top Four - German military concepts(from left to right)
- Officer - with 'stretched' picklehaub, full armoured face and breastplate.
- Infantry - most common soldier on the front.
- Scout/Messenger - lightweight version, trading protection for speed and manueverability.
- Aeronaut - breather/filter, fleece collar and leather flightsuit specialized for extreme altitude temperatures.
Bottom Right - Wing boots - maybe not so successful here ... but worth exploring -
Bottom Left - I love this. Our hero, Dr. Lazarus and another single person people mover. This guy must build these in his sleep. This one seems to employ some anti-gravity device ... don't worry, there are still plenty of shiny levers to twist and crank. Drop fin stabilizer retracts upon landing. Angel crest 'masthead' ensures style is never left behind. Top hat and opera cape worthy - as always.
I decided to collect all of the sketches and concepts I have been spilling onto the page ... the result being .
eddie wilson presents: STEAMPUNK Sketchbook.
Some of these will be finished as drawings or paintings or sculptures or even costume pieces.
The book itself will be available soon.
